At the SPS IPC Drives trade show in Nuremberg, Phoenix Contact brought the new variants from the TC Mobile I/O X200 product range to the market. Users will be able to alert and switch relays via 4G (LTE) mobile networks. The TC Mobile I/O X200-4G and TC Mobile I/O X200-4G AC devices for the European market include a 4G mobile engine (LTE CAT1) with 2G fall back (GSM/GPRS/EDGE).
They therefore combine future-oriented mobile technology with the availability of the 2G network, which currently offers the best coverage.
As before, the new versions can be used to monitor analogue and digital sensor signals by SMS and e-mail via the mobile network and to switch relay outputs by means of SMS messages and the app (SMS, HTTPS).
To make it easier to switch to the new technology, existing 2G device configurations can be imported into the new versions.
